Management's present view, subject to further work and confirmation of equipment availability, is that it would like to spud the well in the course of June 2020. Long lead items are already at the company's base in Douala. Some testing equipment will still need to be mobilised prior to spudding the well, along with personnel, and so this intended date is still subject to change.
The company has made considerable progress in farm-out discussions with a number of parties regarding some or all of the well funding, including exchanging draft term sheets, following a pause in discussions that took place while the company was waiting for formal confirmation of the extension of the current exploration period of the Thali PSC. The company believes that it will be able to complete a farm-out within its desired timeframe for the NJOM-3 well although there can be no certainty as to timing or eventual outcome of such discussions.
